    FISA court demands answers from FBI

    FISA court demands answers from FBI

    This article is a long description of the investigation and highlights the "errors and omissions" in the Trump investigation.

    The Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court on Tuesday ordered the government to explain what the FBI will do to ensure the bureau does not mislead judges again when applying for surveillance orders like those used in the 2016 investigation of the Trump campaign.

    The four-page order from Judge Rosemary M. Collyer, the presiding judge of the secretive court, publicly rebuked the FBI for 17 omissions and errors contained in applications to monitor the electronic communications of Carter Page, a former Trump campaign adviser.




    In a 434-page report released last week, Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz found serious failures in FBI procedures for ensuring that applications to the court are complete and accurate.





    “When FBI personnel misled [the Justice Department] in the ways described above, they equally misled” the court, Collyer wrote in a highly unusual and pointed statement. “The FBI’s handling of the Carter Page applications, as portrayed in the [inspector general’s] report, was antithetical to the heightened duty of candor” expected of filings under the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA).

    The first thing the DOJ should do to ensure it doesn't happen again is severely punish those that perpetuated the fraud on the FISA courts. If Comey, Clapper, Brennan, McCabe and whoever else is involved go down hard it might deter future abuses.

    Any reasonable person would agree.


    I have my doubts that anything substantial will result from all this. I suspect that they will create some new symbolic rules or laws which can and will be ignored when it’s considered convenient.

    Yes, sadly, I agree.

    I wish I didn't have to say it but "So What"

    You have been bad boys. No punishment. Business as usually. The judge just covered her butt from criticism. She can say she did something. Meanwhile Christopher Wray is writing 100 times "The FBI will not Lie Again" on the chalk board. He has not done a damn thing either that was not forced.

    Not just the FBI but the Deep State in total have been thumbing their nose at "demands". Hard drives get destroyed, emails disappear only to be found sometimes by reporters, witnesses refuse to testify, and those demanding don't ever seem to follow through.
